    Sheriff has taken it to a new level. Maybe he's uncomfortable with the fireworks? At any rate this evening he wasnt in with the goats he was in the next pen over which is for chickens, curled up in a dog house.
    He usually snoozes either out in the goat yard or in their shelter.

    Thanks Pam, this is his 3rd 4th of July. He doesnt appear to be wigged out but I trust him.
    This Anatolian guy ate a couple chickens his first year & got into trouble big time for it. One time I made the mistake of asking him in a happy voice if he wanted some chicken (it was raw throw away stuff) & he ignored it.
    Anytime I caught him looking at them I would growl "NO CHICKEN!"

    The first time it happened he was about 4mos old. When I went out he didnt greet me with his usual happy self. He wasnt acting guilty but something was wrong. I felt him all over for injuries, worried that he was coming down with someting, then I found the carcass.
    He KNEW it was a bad move!
    Several mos later he only ate part of one, as if I'd be impressed with his self control! In truth I kind of was.
    And Im sure they didnt die of natural causes, unless you count the LGD.

    my dogs flipped out last night too :doh: even though its illegal in our area people still shoot them off..kinda a waste of time because its still light outside at night, you can hear them but not see them
